  • Travel To a Different Country 
    Learn a craft from that country and try it 
    back home. 
    This is a poster I made for my project, 

    I have to say I am very happy with what I have 
    come up with for this outcome.

    The technique I used was marbling and 
    paper craft. Marbling, Ebru is a technique which 
    started in Persia in the 1400s. 

    My technique of marbling is a variation of the 
    actual marbling.

    I used fluorescent paints and as I marbled 
    the paper, I am reminded of Japan because of 
    the colors reminded me of the softness of Japan 
    and yet the crazy culture of Japan. Japan is also 
    another country that practices marbling but the 
    method also differs from the Persia's Marbling
    known as Ebru.

    I was inspired by my travel in Japan years ago. 
    Besides its culture, I love the scenery in Japan. 
    I loved the mountains and the nature and hence 
    I decided to do a poster of my feelings I had 
    when I traveled to Hokkaido , Japan.
  • Marbling Combs I made. These are made to create textures while marbling.
  • The results from my first-hand marbling. It looks really happy! The process was very fun and I am very happy with the results!
  • Here is the outcome.
    I had to cut out all the pieces that my hand was numb after the all the cutting but I think it was worth it!
